Have you ever been stalking a deer, only to have it suddenly spooked by the blinding glare of a page from the Book Of Deuteronomy? Well, worry no more, as a camouflage Bible geared to outdoorsmen is in the works at Thomas Nelson Publishers. Now you can be at peace with God and kill His creatures at the same time!
South Korean researchers, tired of the inaccuracy of robot vacuum cleaners, developed a solution: they installed a cruise missile guidance system into the vacuum cleaner, allowing it to measure its position with optical and infrared sensors that compare images with those in its memory.

In today’s surreal news, “Whiplash the rodeo monkey earned his spurs this week at a stock show in Fort Worth, Tx., according to a Local 6 News report.” (with video!)

The RIAA and the Republican controlled government are teaming up to put an end to the notions of public domain and fair use. The recent decisions in the Supreme Court and this right-field interpretation on the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act put control of innovation, adaptation, and individual rights squarely in the hands of a few needy… I mean greedy corporations.
|Famed caricaturist Al Hirschfeld died yesterday at the age of 99. His “graceful, fluid caricatures captured the essence of performers from Charlie Chaplin to Jerry Seinfeld,” and often included hidden tributes to his daughter Nina with the letters “NINA” inserted into the artwork as hair, folds in clothes, or other details.

Now that the upcoming 10th season seems to be definitely the last one for Friends, CNN reports that a spinoff series starring Matt LeBlanc and possibly other cast members is in the works.
